Grab Four Favorite Sweater And Cozy Up TO This Cupcake

I grew up not far from a place called Apple Hill. I love anything made with apples and that includes apple butter. My oldest son is a huge lover of the brown spicy apple goodness. I think it was from remembering how the house smelled when I would have a huge crock-pot of peeled, sliced, and cooking apples mixed with cinnamon and nutmeg. I used to cook it for about three days. The house smelled so amazing! The taste was even more incredible.

Nathan asked if he brought me the apples me would I make apple butter. I totally agreed. At the time Nathan was working for a man with a few trees. . He told Nathan he could have as many apples as he wanted if he picked them.  Later that day I came into the house to find 4 laundry baskets of apples. Let’s just say we ate a lot of apple butter that year: ~D
